BAD(L) Längenfeld

sightseeing/guided tour , museum/gallery , open-air museum

Exactly where a sulphurous spring was bubbling in the 16th century, today the area around the Nature Park House, which is planted in a variety of ways and with a small waterfall, forms a special place of power. In the walk-in "borehole" and in the equally accessible "sulfur rock" the whole family can trace the history from the Bauernbadl over the former spa to the construction of the thermal bath Aqua Dome.
Seating areas invite you to relax and linger.

In addition to the historical experience, there is the possibility to take sulfur water for drinking and takeaway.

Sagenweg

excursion , various sights , excursion tips

The fire-spitting dragon
The journey is its own reward – here it is true!
Behind every corner walkers can discover a new mystic figure dating back to Ötztal‘s long history in story-telling. The trail features 14 stations with life-sized fabled figures that are made from scrap metal by Annemarie and Günther Fahrner. Information panels display more detailed information on the single characters from old Ötztal tales – like “Wildes Mandl“, the mystic local, or “Engelswand“ rock face.
The ascent seems easier than expected as there are new highlights in a row: the headless horseman, the 5.5-meter tall dragon or the mystic little guy accompany hikers to the scenic wedding chapel made of wood and glass.
Picture-book natural landscapes go hand in hand with the stylish ambiance of Alpengasthof am Feuerstein. The private wine cellar – interspersed with huge rocks – is in perfect harmony with romantic candles creating a very special kind of magic.
Please note: The Trail of Legends is not illuminated!

Winkelbergsee

excursion , various sights , excursion tips

Picture-book idyll in the fairytale forest
It happened some 10,000 years ago. Still today hikers can marvel at the vast rockslide area in the surroundings of Köfels. 11 information panels along the 5.7 km Winkelberg Geology Trail tell you more about this stony history.
The giant basin of Längenfeld was formed by huge amounts of water, rubble and ice. Its nearby rockslide forest is interspersed with enormous granite rocks and boulders. Can you feel the icy breath of air coming from deep inside the ravines and gorges? Maybe you better focus on the staffed forest animals watching you from behind the trees!
Of course, there is also a witch cave.
Magic never ends in the Fairytale Forest. Soon you will reach jade-green Lake Winkelbergsee with the three little islands sparkling in the summer sun. A true natural gem, fed by crystal clear spring water. Slightly above little explorers find a small mountain brook and water play park with mill wheels. Nature itself is the most inspiring playground.
Starting point: car park next to the bridge over Ötztaler Ache near Au – Winklen
Walking time, both ways: approx. 2.5 hours
Difficulty level: easy
Difference in altitude: approx. 150 m
